Handbook for improving living conditions on board fishing vessels

The objective of the Work in Fishing Convention, 2007 (No. 188) is to ensure that fishers have decent working and living conditions on board fishing vessels.

The Handbook has been developed to assist competent authorities and the representative organizations of employers and workers in the fishing sector gain a better understanding of Convention No. 188 and Recommendation No. 199. The stimulation of national tripartite discussion will encourage States to take concrete steps towards the implementation and ratification of the Convention.
